| Five to Try // Faux Fur |
Though it doesn’t quite feel like it yet in NYC (we are in the middle of a heat wave) Fall is upon us and it is time to start thinking about pulling out your coziest pieces for the cooler weather to come. And when it comes to being cozy, it doesn’t get much better than a little faux fur. This season, fuzzy accents and head to toe faux fur are definitely going to be a go-to trend. Check out a few of my “wish list” items below and let me know what you think!
Pile Biker Jacket: If you missed out on the “cool biker girl” jacket last year, don’t you worry, because this baby is coming back bigger than ever. You may have seen it in the classic black coloring, but this fall it has been given a makeover with a bunch of new colors and textures. Can you guess which one of my new favorites is? If you guessed this faux sherpa biker jacket, then you are correct! This jacket is the best of both worlds because it is cozy but still fashionable. You get the edge of a biker jacket but the cuteness of a teddy bear…I mean COME ON!!!
Faux Fur Jacket: I purchased a jacket very similar to this one last year and I am so in love! I will warn you, though…if you get this jacket you will more than likely end up petting yourself constantly whenever you wear it haha. This one comes in two other neutral colors and would be the perfect addition to your closet if you are just getting in to the trend because it can easily be dressed up out down. You can elevate your every day jeans and sweatshirt look by throwing this on or you can add it to a LBD for a more evening appropriate look. Either way, you can’t go wrong and you will be nice and warm from day to night.
Fluffy Fleece Long Sleeved Coat: I found this hidden gem just the other day, and ever since I laid eyes on it, I haven’t been able to get it out of my mind! If this doesn’t look like the coziest thing you could ever wear, I don’t know what does. You will definitely be seeing me wrapped up in this fuzzy little cocoon all winter long. I especially love this beautiful rose color, but it comes in a few other neutral shades as well! I also love the long, structured look of this jacket – it keeps the trend looking extra sleek and sophisticated.
Faux Fur Leopard Vest: All I have to say is “Give me all the leopard print!” J.Crew does it again with this extremely stylish faux fur leopard vest. This is one of the more fashion-forward pieces, but J.Crew does such a good job of showing it styled in a way that is a lot more down-to-earth. It is such a fun statement piece and could really make any boring old outfit make you say WOW!
Fur Mix Army Jacket: Spoiler alert – I actually already own this jacket and I am OBSESSED. I tried to take it out for a spin already in this heat, but ended up sweating buckets so I had to take it off by mid-day haha. I can’t wait to pair this jacket with a sleek all-black-outfit or throw it on over a simple black and white striped dress with some over-the- knee-boots. To make things even better, the price tag is definitely easy on the eyes (thank you Target)!!!
